First time builder, I can't get the system to boot using all 4 sticks of ram. I'm confidant that its not a memory problem, As I can use any of the three sticks and it boots correctly. Also, I can use any of the 4 slots and it still boots and runs correctly. When I put the 4th stick in, the motherboard beeps once (like normal) but then sits at the motherboard's logo screen for about 10 seconds until it resets and does it again. (The same situation that happened before I had an o.s. installed, and I ended up removing a stick to get it to boot from the cdrom)
Memtest was successful on each stick of ram individually, as well as each dimm individually.
I'm new to any bios tweaking so I don't want to change anything with minimal knowledge.
Here are my specs:
EP45-UD3P BIOS Version F8
Core 2 Quad Q9550 Revision E0 (Stepping A)
The RAM is Corsair Dominator CM2X1024-8500C5D (all 4 sticks)
GPU Diamond 3850 512mb
Windows Vista Ultimate 32-bit
Also the RAM's max bandwidth (in EasyTune) is listed as pc26400, but I'de rather get all dimms working before I address that issue.
Thanks in advance. Let me know what other information I can give you to be helpful.
